Nationwide, an estimated 73% of leisure and hospitality workers have lost jobs, income, or hours in the COVID-19 Crisis. In New Orleans, this impact will be even greater than the national average. Made in New Orleans (MiNO) Foundation is not stopping in light of COVID-19 pandemic and its ongoing effects. In fact, our work is even more imperative to offer assistance to hospitality professionals of color who are disproportionately being effected by this pandemic. 

Made In New Orleans Foundation immediately shifted its supports to adapt to the moment. We are currently:

  • Providing live online conversations, cooking and cocktail demos with hospitality professionals to amplify their voices during this time. 

  • Providing virtual mentorship to our alumni, who are facing the biggest challenge of their professional lives

  • Keeping information about stimulus relief and local relief flowing to our alumni scholarship recipients and other hospitality professionals

Made in New Orleans (MiNO) Foundation has opened multiple avenues for giving to the COVID-19 Assistance Fund. There's an option to make your donation a recurring monthly gift or to kindly consider making a one-time gift contribution.

We thank you for your ongoing support. We need you now more than ever.
